Funny little set of "damn, I have no idea" exam paper answers that I found linked on the the excellent Daring Fireball "They didn't study..."

Some of those I've seen before but they're all good! I can identify with the square-root hangman.

Once, when marking biochemistry exams, I came across a pirate story. That was amusing. Another goodie was the guy who wrote on a biochem exam "I have no idea how to answer this question, but that's okay because after I hand this in I'm going to go to <nightclub>, get drunk and chase tail."

I can definately sympathize,
on a recent systems test, one of my answers made no sense, so I drew a nice picture of me hitting myself in the head with my textbook (the T.A. gave me a half of a point for it)

yeah I've seen most of those - I personally haven't had to resort to any of that but i've known several students who have just put down random words for answers and have gotten half marks which isn't bad.

Here's what I wrote on my AP CS exam:

\\I don't actually know how to write this program,
\\so I'm going to comment in some bad jokes

\\What do you call a midget fortune teller who's
\\escaped from prison?
\\A small medium at large!

The elephant was good. So was the one with the comment "Less dramatic next time". But the hangman...I can really relate to that one. It speaketh to my soul, partially because I used to do my homework on that kind of paper.

The worst I ever did was turn in an exam with the header "Evil Take-Home Final."

That and, on a really horrible organic chemistry quiz, I was asked to draw a mechanism I never learned. In fact, I didn't even know enough to even come up with plausible bullshit. So I drew the reactants and products and a question mark between them. My classmates were more creative. One drew a cloud with a finger sticking out of it, and a lightening bolt shooting out of the finger.

I thought about this thread last night while I was in the midst of realizing just how woefully inadequate my studying had been. I have little confidence in the results of my Biochem test. No related funny story, sorry, I didn't have the balls to illustrate my failure.

I may have gotten a *gasp* B.

I illustrated all my GCSE papers with little men in various situations, depending on how little I knew about the answer or how bored I was. One exam paper had a family being chased through the pages by a giant lizard (they escaped into the "This page intentionally left blank" on the back of the paper, in case you were worried about them).

The first time I saw this, I absolutely laughed so hard, I cried. The "Jeremy Paper" ("Coming in like El Nino") was on the list, and this video is fricking hilarious. Mike Hightower has the perfect educational filmstrip voice for this, and the drawings are hilarious.

CAVEAT: Use the lavatory before you go, and don't drink a lot of caffeinated beverages before you watch this:
